THE 2015 Splendour in the Grass Community Grants Fund is now open for applications.
Each year, Splendour In The Grass donates a portion of the event's ticket sales to some of the Byron Shire's local community groups.
In the last 14 years, $375,000 has been distributed throughout local organisations.
